Fighting enderman can be pretty annoying as they can instantly teleport to or away from the player. On top of that, a single hit from an enderman can deal damage up to 5.25 hearts in Minecraft.

A mob that can teleport and deals significant damage sure sounds scary. Endermen only attack if the player either looks at his face or hits him.

Players can avoid Endermen by not looking at his face. Another way to avoid enderman is by wearing a carved pumpkin.

Endermen try to avoid water at all costs as they take damage from all kinds of water, including rain. When an enderman touches a water block, they will instantly teleport to somewhere safe and far.

Players can use a water bucket to protect themselves from any enderman who's targeting them in Minecraft.

The enderman has a special ability to pick up a block and hold it in their hands. Some players may not know that an enderman holding a block won't despawn even if the player unloads that chunk.

An enderman holding a block is similar to an enderman with a name tag. The only way to make it despawn is by killing them. These endermen can quickly accumulate in a world and consume the mob capacity.

#2 - Ender pearls
